Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Softlock places you in a white room where you must undergo 15 physics and logic puzzles to escape. Will you make it out alive? Yes you will. But will you make it out unscathed? Yeah probably... Either way you should play the game to find out.

The game is far superior with a controller, you can play it with a keyboard but it feels very slidey and bad. (tested with xone controller)

Left joystick - movement
A - dash
Y - restart level

WASD- movement
Ctrl - dash
Space - restart level

This game was the first time I'd ever done any 3d in unity so I didnt really understand the collision well (or maybe unity is just bad) so there are alot of places where you get stuck on seams and walls, to get around this just dash through or at it or just restart, sorry.

All around good game. I like the simple geometric design and think the music compliments it well. What did you use to create the music?

@Gnarly Narwhal I used FL Studio Producer Edition.

Reminiscent of Adventures of Lolo. I agree the music makes it.

Nice mood!
Some collision bugs and I think the game is better with keyboard, this type of controls are weird with the controller joystick...

Some collision issues, but an enjoyable game nonetheless. I liked the simplistic look and the music.

This game has really good concepts, and is so clean looking! Some of the puzzles are pretty punishing if you push a block too far, but once you figure out the puzzle it 's satisfying. There are some game-breaking bugs though, causing the block not to be able to pass certain points, making the game impossible to progress. Work out the bugs, and it could make for a great game!

I like the ambience, but the physics are feel really loose, I think it would of worked much better constrained to a grid. Very nice graphics

Fantastic music! I also think the game is better with a keyboard or d-pad. I kept sliding to the side of things accidentally with the controller stick.

Nice aesthetic, gentle music, slightly slippery controls.

The graphics and music are great. The mood is great - it makes me want to keep playing, but I can't get past the first level with a ramp - the block just keeps getting stuck, or pushed where I can't push it.

oh! Nice! And it's also online! Can I find it on indiexpo? I'm making videos about the games of this Jam, but only about the games hosted also on indiexpo! Tell me if you will add it, so I can include it in my next video ;)

Neat game. :) I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Great entry!
The art is simple but it's so good to the eye.
The music is spot on!
Awesome job!
